the small society by Brickman IT HAP ALL \ Medical Center's Gannon 'Intense' By CYNTHU LOWRY AP Televbioa-Radio Writer HOLLYWOOD (lAP) - If one is a bit of a bypodiondriac, a lunch break wlilji Chad Everett gives one the irice, wann feeling of a security blanket. Everett-^bout to enter his third CBS aeascm as "Medical Center's" aHnaround practitioner of medicine and super- surgeon, Dr. Joe Gannon,— looks and acts just the way one wishes the family doctor would. He also uses words such as "aneurism" with the fluency of a man who has spent a lifetime peering at X rays. Intense Preparation Although the operating room scenes occupy only a fraction on any episode 's time, Everett prepares for them with the -Intensity of an athlete training for the Olympics. He is particularly proud of some fan mail he received from real doctors con- gratulatbg him on his skill manipulating a pair of Metzen- baum scissors in an operating room scen«. "They are used to cut blood vessels," the actor explained. "You hold them for cutting between the thumb and the third finger, and then swmg them back to free your other fingers for tying off vessels and using sponges. It really took a' lot of practice to get the hang of It." As in other medical series, the sickness and surgery sequences of "Medical Center" are handled cautiously. A committee of a medical association checks out the scripts and there are many technical-advisers. Everett prepared to pliay doctor by spending hours in a hospital. He also took 48 hours of color fihn showing doctors at work in operating rooms and he looks at this library frequently. Much MedicaU Knowledge The adxM- has picked up so much medical knowledge that when his dog recently ripped his ear in a fight, the veter inarian asked Chad if he wanted to help sew the animal up. Everett declined, he said hastily. Everett said the series will continue to feature contemporary thfemes, some of which would have been out of TV bounds a few seasons back- male impotence and artificial insemination. There also is one about a great surgeon in failing health with a "ghost surgeon" who steps in to handle the difficult, delicate parts of his oper- aions. Has Average Yield Since First Settled BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — Situated at 9,600 feet altitude just west of the Continental Divide, this town's gold mines have yielded an average of nearly $1 million for each of the 111 years since it was first settled during tlie gold rush of the 1860's. At the tiuTi of the century the highest post office in the U.S. was located a few miles out of town on 11,482-foot Boreas Pass, where a narrow gauge railroad line snaked its way across the Rockies. Today an old log section house marks the spot. CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS 1. Vigorous 5. Enlarge 8. Nettle 11. Melange 12. Garland 13.1,002 14. Humdinger 15. Club moss 17. Sign 18. Secondhand 19.

Yorkshire river Bm Cody Rides Again PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — In May of 1883, Col, William Frederick Cody loaded about 80 head of horses and as many men into a railroad train in North Platte, Neb., and launched what was to become the Internationally famous Buffalo BiU's Wild West show. The show lasted until 1916, touring the United States and Europe, when Buffalo Bill closed it down and returned to Denver, Colo. He died the next year. , One night recently, 55 years later, hampered by lawsuits and openuig-nJght foibles, Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World reopened here. Time hadn't severed all connections with Buffalo BiU's old slMw. His great grand-daugh' ter, Patricia Garlow, node hi the event, and the production manager was Jack Joyce Jr., son of one of the original Wild West show veterans. Even the stagecoach used in one act was used in the turn-of-the-century shows. Ironically, use of the name Bill Cody hi the show is the subject of several court suits. The Ringling Brothers, B a r n- um and Bailey Circus maintains it has right to use of the Cody name, and has secured a temporary restraining order re- quhring that the current Wild West show disassociate itself with the circus In advertising. Nearly 4,000 fans sat for 2V2 hours Wednesday through Indian attacks, stunl^ridlng exhibitions, cavalry drills and, W ^d Bill forgive, a few circus acts. The show is the creation of Montie Montana Jr., son of the famous rodeo cowboy and roper. The script, which advises fans of what the original Wild West show fans watched, was written by Tom Blackburn, who wrote the script and songs for Walt Disney's legendary Dave Crockett film. Six Flags Taps Big Reservoir ST. LOUIS (AP) - An ambitious team is operating a mecca m America's entertam- ment uidustry under the heading of Six Flags over Mid- America, the third park in a chain owned by the Great Southwest Corp., a Penn Central subsidiary. In contrast to the fuiancial distress of the parent company, Six Flags has been on a sound financial basis almost from its spawnmg at Arlington, Tex., midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, a decade ago. The concept is one of meticulously-planned, wholesome fun pitched to the family with an eye ^tdward making it within the reach of Dad's pocketbook. In extendmg Six Flags to the Midwest, Great Southwest is tappUig what it considers to be a reservoir of 78 million persons living within 500 miles St, Louis, The area Includes Chicago to the north, Kansas City to the west. Little Bock and Memphis to the south and Indianapolis Cincinnati and Louisville to the east, all within seven hours' driving from Six Flags Over Mid-America. Six Flags Over Texas, grea Southwest's pilot project opened Aug. 5,1961, and has a traded more than 17 million visitors, including a smgle-day high of 34,381.

Before directors of Great Southwest selected a site near Eureka, Mo., 32 miles west of the St. Louis Arch for a third Six Flags, more than 18 months went into researdi.' The site selected was 500 acres of pastureland, from which 200 acres have been converted through 1.8 million man- hours into Six Flags Over Mid- America. Opening June 5, the park has been a success that exceeded the expectations of Larry Codh- ran, general manager. By Labor Dav attendance climbed to 1.2 million. The park, manned principally by enthusiastic high school and college youngsters, shifted to fall hours after. Labor Day and will be open Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 31. Inside Six Flags Over Mid- America is a conglomeratlcm of entertainment much like that at its sister parks, with facets reflecting the scenic area's his- ory. A runaway mine train, patterned after a roller coaster, is an mnovation. The park also features a skyway, a cave ride, a river boat trip and a log flume ride, like a roller coaster over water. Two trauis chug around the park on 6,600 feet of track. Other entertainment includes both sports and antique car rides, a dolphin show, a Gay Nineties review at Miss Kitty's Saloon and a puppet theater. Food and beverage stands and shops on the grounds do a business,of $25,000 daily, with assistant' manager Russ Melton, 21, explaining that "cleali- ness is the first thing we work on."
